Aristotle
“A beginning is that which does not itself follow anything by causal necessity, but after which something naturally is or comes to be. An end, on the contrary, is that which itself naturally follows some other thing, either by necessity, or as a rule, but has nothing following it. A middle is that which follows something as some other thing follows it. A well constructed plot, therefore, must neither begin nor end at haphazard, but conform to these principles.”
Aristotle, Poetics

“The continuum in which we live is not the kind of place in which middles can be unambiguously excluded. ”
Reuben Abel
